President Donald Trump appeared to stumble while reading his Fourth of July rally speech Thursday. When talking about the Revolutionary War, he talked about the successes of the U.S. Army closing the airports.
“In June of 1775 the Continental Congress created a unified Army out of the Revolutionary Forces encamped around Boston and New York, and named after the great George Washington, commander in chief,” Trump read in his speech. “The Continental Army suffered a bitter winter at Valley Forge, found glory across the waters of the Delaware and seized victory from Cornwallis at Yorktown. Our Army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over airports, it did everything it had to do and at Ft. McHenry under the rocket’s red glare had nothing but victory. When dawn came, the star-spangled banner waved defiant.”
In 1775 there were no aircraft nor were there airports.
Trump didn’t deviate from his prepared remarks so it’s unclear if that was in the prepared remarks or if he lost his place on the teleprompter.

‘Worst nightmare for the White House’: CNN reporter says latest impeachment testimony has left GOP scrambling
CNN reporter Jamie Gangel on Tuesday suggested that Republican lawmakers are attacking the Democrats' impeachment inquiry process because they are increasingly finding they cannot defend President Donald Trump on the substance of his actions.
During an interview with host Brooke Baldwin, Gangel said that the White House is particularly dreading any future testimony provided by former national security adviser John Bolton, who reportedly denounced Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani's shadow campaign to pressure Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden as a "drug deal."
CNN’s Avlon demolishes Trump’s three biggest Syria lies that are getting the Kurds killed
On Tuesday, CNN's John Avlon laid into President Donald Trump for his lies about Syria — lies which, he noted, have a terrible human cost.
"War and peace. Life and death," said Avlon. "And that’s the power of the presidency. And that’s what we’re seeing in Syria right now. Where President Trump’s impulsive order to remove U.S. troops after a call with Turkey’s autocrat is causing chaos and slaughter. And it’s given an anticipated victory to four American adversaries, Russia, Iran, the Syrian government and Islamic State."
"Who could have seen this coming? Basically anyone who was paying attention, except, apparently, President Trump," continued Avlon. "And so, faced with the real-time consequences of his actions, he’s defaulting to his comfort zone: A pattern of disinformation."
CNN panel stunned after Bakari Sellers calls Tulsi Gabbard ‘a puppet for the Russian government’
Bakari Sellers shocked his fellow CNN panelists on Tuesday when he called Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) a puppet for the Russian government.
During a discussion of Tuesday's upcoming Democratic primary debate, Sellers accused Gabbard of being fundamentally different from all the other candidates on the stage, and he darkly hinted that she has loyalties in places other than the United States.
"There is a chance that Tulsi is not just working for the United States of America, but I digress," he said.
"Wait a minute, what?" a shocked April Ryan asked.
Sellers then went on to elaborate his accusations.
